Switch to an easy winter skincare routine and try these 5 winter skincare must haves.

Here are 5 winter skincare must haves

1.Body Butter

The thick body butter is perfect to slather up in winters and make your skin super soft. Choose one as per your skin type and give your skin extra nourishment and moisture. If you’re from the oily skin type and think body butter is too heavy a formulation for you, then try body yogurts or lotions.

2. Lip Scrub

The harsh weather can make your lips dry and flaky. A lip balm will not be enough, you need extra hydration. A lip scrub is excellent to scrub off dead skin and leaves your lips soft and kissable.

You can also make a lip scrub easily at home. Mix 1tsp olive oil + 2 tbsp sugar + few drops vanilla essence and there you have it, an easy peasy homemade lip scrub.

3. Hand cream

Our hands are always doing something and we tend to overlook them when it comes to moisturization. A hand cream is a winter skincare must have. Keep in your bag to apply it on the go and keep your hands soft and supple.

4. Facial Oils

Facial oils are a boon for people with dry skin. They are packed with intense goodness of natural ingredients and can be used as an extra step in winters to lock in the moisture. You can use an oil-in-serum, or a facial oil targeting particular needs like pigmentation, dryness, or anti-ageing.

Make sure you always do a patch test before using any new product.

5. Body Scrub

The cold harsh weather and hot water baths can make your skin dry and flaky. To get rid of dryness and dead skin, a body scrub is indeed a winter skincare must have. They’re available in so many variants! You can choose one with mild exfoliating granules if you have sensitive skin and a body scrub with oil is great for extra dry skin.
